Things are not what they seem

It's finished! And I thought this was a good name for an optical illusion quilt.
I'm not happy about the quilting in the border, but apart from that I think it turned out quilte well.

(in case you're wondering what it's hanging on:

The flag of our bike trailer (that pic was taken almost 2 years ago but we still use it like this) - it was the only thing I could find that was long enough!)

I also made some haiku ATCs with the fabrics I painted on Sunday - I will show them here when they have arrived at their destinations. And a postcard:

The next project will probably be the Connections quilt for Art Quilts Around the WOrld (the online artquiltgroup formerly known as Around the World in 20 Quilts...). And of course the selvedge QAYG quilt is waiting for me to finish it before winter...

Things may not be what they seem - but they LOOK wonderful!
Congratulations, it is a beautiful quilt.

Looks to me that it came out splendidly well.

Cute hanger!

And nicely painted fabric as well.

This quilt is Very, VERY cool! If you have a high quality jpg of it - might you send me a copy and let me use it in my "Elements of Art" lecture and class? It demonstrated complementary color and the use of scale amazingly well.

I'd love to hear more about its construction!
